1911 T205 Gold Border Ty Cobb

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $720

Ty Cobb card from the T205 Gold Border set, one of the most popular of all 1910-era tobacco issues. Encapsulated as "Authentic" by SGC due to added color at the corners. Despite these alterations, this remains a pleasing example of one of card collecting's most classic cards, from what is perhaps card collecting's single most condition-sensitive issue. Cobb is not just the most valuable card in the set, it also one of the most well known and popular of all Ty Cobb cards. This example displays with bold colors, near-perfect registration, outstanding centering, and a crease along the left side of the card, which does not detract from the card's visual appeal. Honest Long Cut reverse. Aside from the noted added color, the card is in otherwise Good condition. This card provides an excellent opportunity to acquire an affordable example of this classic Ty Cobb card. Reserve $200. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $720
